First listen: 'Born Under a Bad Sign' from Swedish soul-punk Moneybrother

Sweden’s Moneybrother has won hearts and Grammys overseas, now the solo project of former Monster singer Anders Wendin is gearing up for his full-length U.S. debut with “Real Control.”

Due in April on CD and vinyl, “Real Control” is a catchy throwback to the sound of ’60s and ’70s soul, with a healthy dose of punk attitude.

Although first song “Born Under a Bad Sign” shares a name with the Albert King blues tune, Moneybrother’s song cheerfully embraces his star-crossed luck with big, catchy backing vocals, stinging guitar licks and rumbling piano.

Moneybrother plans to tour the U.S. this year, too, starting with a pair of gigs opening for Rhett Miller at City Winery in New York March 20.
